Hail to the Deadskins

Long, very analytical "Analysis" piece in today's WaPost about what the Washington Indigenous Peoples Football Team needs to do to stop sucking so hard and get out of third gear. The article suggests such improbable concepts as "Committing to a Plan."

So how can the Skins get better?

Real-world answer, from players and coaches: New linemen.

Never-gonna-happen answer: New management and ownership.

The first team held up as an example of "how to do it" is your "Golden Horseshoe Up Their Ass" Baltimore Ravens, which just lost the AFC Championship game--a brutal, vicious fight which, someday, Willis McGehee will be told about.
But for Redskins fans, who have not enjoyed a regular season with at least 11 victories since the 1991 season, when the team last played in the Super Bowl, the goal might be far simpler: Be like the Falcons. Or the Dolphins. Or, best of all, the Ravens.
